Massage Reduces Tension Headaches

Are you plagued by tension headaches? If so, it's time to book an appointment with your massage therapist! Researchers have recently found that the psychological and physiological state of patients with tension headache improves within just 24 hours of receiving a 30-minute massage.

The study that was published in the American Journal of Manipulative Physiological and Therapeutics reported that a 30-minute massage on cervical trigger points improved autonomic nervous system regulation, improved patients psychological state, and reduced stress and anxiety.

Want to try massage but aren't sure where to go? How about our student massage clinics in Kansas City or Lawrence!
